A researcher from Islamic Azad University, Science and Research branch has done a kinematic review on a progressive foot deformity, hallux valgus, and claimed that surgical treatment is the most effective way in treating patients.

According to an ISCA report, hallux valgusis the most common deformity of the forefoot and the toes that causes symptoms on the medial edge of the foot, the sole, and the small toes.

Niloofar Tahmooresi stated that wearing shoes which are too tight with high heels for years commonly encourages hallux valgus to develop.

If a large part of the body weight no longer rests on the heel and the longitudinal arch of the foot, but instead presses on the delicate forefoot, the front transverse arch of the foot loses stability: Splayfoot develops.

She declared that the research has been carried out for the first time in Iran and the world, due to its kinetics revision. This study was conducted through recording films, also analyzing them by TRACKER software.

Results demonstrated that during the walking in patients with hallux valgus after surgery, patients could walk easily and recover completely.

The research has been led by Dr. Kamran Hassani and advised by Dr. Mostafa Rostami in Science and Research IAU.
